cuts. obama talks about the clinton years, but taxes were higher for lower income, families, child credits were not there, and lower rates. what's the problem is it did not apply to people and added layers of complexity to an already ridiculously complex tax code. as an investment advisers you have to deal with rates, created new ones nowings baa there's an additional 3.6, and if you're at this income, there's .9%, and you're creating many more bracts, not -- brackets. there's rates from 0, 5, 15, i think there's a 23.9 all for different levels, and then types of income. buying gold, that's taxed at 5 rate, stocks is ooe thing, and, you know, partnerships, it's totally complicated, and is not going to raise a lot of money versus the progressiveness of the tax code, but the multilayer complexity, a progressive simple tax code would be easier to deal with, remove the deductions and a complicated weird way to analyze the impact and mortgage deduction apply as much. phases out. we have a phase out called amt. neil: bill clinton maybe has the best example. he raised income taxes, but he

children saying president obamaments to continue to borrow trillion dollars a year. it's a two sided coins that they can learn from. >> the interesting thing, neil, about this is when you talk about the kids, we're talking about, you know, of course, the people of five and six years old or 10 or 15 years old, but don't forget, neil, there's generations not born yet. neil: absolutely. >> still the gleam in the eye; right? that's another point to make. i want to touch on something you were just asking charlie about. you know, one interesting thing about the policies of this president, when you think about it, and you think about the demographic groups the president won, young people, women, hispanics, blacks, young blacks, those, if you look at the official statistics, those are the very groups most victimized by the policies in terms of high unemployment and falling incomes. that's ironic as well. neil: i look,and, you know, i guess i could have critics if they didn't like the president using kids, but, first of all, the kids were thre, and their parents let them be there. in fact, a lot of

, six years, even before he endorsed barack obama the first time, i would get attacked for associating with colin powell's very conservative with a small "c" realist approach that republican presidents followed for years. it was the weinberger doctrine. it was the reagan doctrine. it was the powell doctrine. and suddenly, it became the doctrine of lefties? >> colin powell is a self-identified republican and has been for many, many years. and with each passing year, with each passing election cycle, the republican party, too many within the republican party, try to further estrange him from the republican party platform, from much of what is said publicly by a lot of republicans. colin powell is also a guy who has the ability and the belief that a lot of republicans -- not a lot -- but too many republicans and too many democrats don't have, he has the ability and the belief to put country ahead of party. and that's unfortunately something that's passe in washington. >> the problem, leigh, though is there are, you know, we're here in new york. or washington or boston or l.a. and the conv

after the top of the hour. the election of barak obama guarantees four more years of government growth, many say. that's mostly due to the landmark health care legislation, the affordable care act. as the bureaucracy gets bigger, your coverage could actually get smaller? here to help us understand the new law, betsy mccoy, author of the book" beating observe observe." you've been an advocate of explaining what observe -- obamacare is all about. >> the book is actually a no spin, easy to understand guide for people who know nothing about health insurance or health care except what they've experienced themselves. but there are big changes ahead for everybody. for example, most americans get their health insurance at work, through their own employer or their spouse's employer. but they may be losing that coverage. >> gretchen: why? >> because the law requires, being in 2014, that employers with 50 or more full-time workers, provide coverage. not just any coverage. the government mandated one size fits all plan, which will cost about twice as much as what many employers currently offer. so

be the case. we're learning president obama will hold his first news conference of his second term, certainly of the new year, 2013, that will happen 11:15 this morning in the east room. it is an open press event. perhaps the reason for this is his push on immigration. we may hear some of that at the top of this news conference what he hopes to accomplish there in terms of comprehensive immigration reform. no doubt there will be questions though about the debt ceiling and how the president expects to make up those revenues, whether he will try to do that to increase taxes one form or another. there will be a lot of questions this morning perhaps on afghanistan as well. that comes up 1:15 this morning and that comes up here on fox news. bill: you wonder if his answers parallel with what senator lee was talking about or whether they go in an entirely different direction. that is where the battle lines draw on this new term. martha: correction. this will be the last press conference of the last term because the inauguration is coming up. bill: duly noted. a week from today, "america's newsroom"
